Griezmann vows to stay with Atletico

Atletico Madrid lose CAS appeal against FIFA transfer ban

However, following Atletico's unsuccessful appeal against their transfer ban, combined with Mourinho's sudden emphasis on securing an all-out striker, Griezmann took to social media to make his loyalty to Diego Simeone clear.

Atletico appealed against the ban on signing players but it was upheld on Thursday, meaning the club can not make any signings until the January 2018 transfer window and would therefore be unable to replace the France global should he leave.

Atletico Madrid's transfer ban was upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport on Thursday June 1, 2017, harming Manchester United's hopes of signing Antoine Griezmann. Earlier reports suggested that United had "dropped interest" in the forward, who carries a €100m release clause with Atletico.

Rumors involving Griezmann had always been pending the CAS decision, although many expected the club to see a favorable ruling since Real Madrid was let off easy in the winter.

It is claimed that Griezmann was given an ultimatum by United over a transfer before Federation Internationale de Football Association chose to uphold Atleti's transfer ban. "We talked to the leaders and we will be back for next season", added the 26-year-old.

The France worldwide said he had made a decision to stay at the Spanish side after discussing with his sporting advisor Eric Olhats.

"It's a hard time for the club".

It's a story that has dragged on for nearly two years with United in a much stronger position now though having tied the 26-year-old down to a new deal that keeps him at Old Trafford until 2019.

Atletico joins Barcelona and Real Madrid in serving transfer bans after signing youngsters from around the world.

"I'm not so sure if we've heard the end of that", he told Sky Sports. He was top scorer for France in Euro 2016 following which he scored 16 league goals for Atletico last season.

"United need goals, all the teams I played in there was goals from everywhere".
